In my son's mathmatics class they had a simular problem.
What is the missing number? 47134(?)
The correct number is 5. By taking a look at the last two digits.
My answer 7
0 because you go from 1 to 7, and then count to 6. so 7-1=6 and then counting up to that. 6-5=1 and counting up to that would be 0.
5 because you count to 7 1 by 1 (and you dislike the numbers 1,2 and 3). after which you'd have to count to six 5 by 5, first stop being 5.
7 because you're counting to 7 1 by one, making the next one 7.
8 because in binary it looks something like this 0001 0111 0100 0101 0110 and you would never have used the first number, which is a waste of bits. it would make the number of uses of the numbers 1,4,3,2
8 because in trinary it looks something like this 1, 21, 11, 12, 20 and the next on in the line would (obviously) be 22, being 8.

My answer 7
One foot in the stirup, the other on the transporter pad.
hehehe this is a lot of fun, well worth the 200 geos, this means I am not revealing the answer. Sorry to disappoint, although the thinkers out there have another chance to work it out.Originally Posted by blitzkrieg
Next clue, forget maths.
I stated above that the answer is 8. Re-read it and tell me why?

c'mon?
Next clue - look at the numbers physically!
It's now worth 150 geos because that's a big clue.
wtf, when i posted my answers i missed all the posts before, very very very odd, you already said it was 8 apperently.
well if the last number can be 6 or 9 or 0, im guessing this is something about those numbers being round in appearance (just thinking out loud here).
ah i know! on my alarm clock numbers are represented by lines, 1 has 1 line, 7 has 2, 4 has 4, 3 has 5 and so do 2 and 5.
6,9 and 0 have 6 lines. So the next number needs 7 lines! and the only number with 7 lines is 8!

i only wonder why there is no number with 3 lines, although you could write 4 with 3 lines as well.

Timmetie has it!
on a digital clock the number 1 has two strokes
7 has 3 strokes
4 has 4 strokes
2,5 and 3 have 5 strokes
6,9 and 0 have 6 strokes
and only 8 has all 7 strokes!

yeee! i won something!
darn, i might have wasted my luck on winning fake money. could we have a "throw over left shoulder" option for money?
So Blitz, you just sit around staring at your digital clock?

Must've been having a deep and meaningful with my significant other ... mind tends to wander when she wants to discuss "feelings".Originally Posted by His Lord Uberdude
Cowtreky - yeah, it's the simple ones that are the most fun to stump people with. I was sitting back imagining people doing little additions or multiplications trying to work out a common link .
Who's got the next one?
This problem is a new one, worth 50G
4 7 2 1 3
Next number in this sequence, has two answers? What is it, with reasons of course!

good suggestion; done!
